The bathroom is usually the busiest room in any home and one that is frequently the target of a homeowner’s remodeling plans. Kitchens outstrip bathrooms slightly when it comes to remodeling popularity but only just. Undertaking a bathroom remodel is always a challenge but that challenge doubles if the bathroom you are reworking is a little on the small side. There are however some bathroom design tricks that can make even the tiniest bathroom appear (and even feel bigger) while increasing their functionality as well.
Floors – A bathroom floor should be as practical as it is attractive. Ceramic tile flooring is a great choice for any bathroom but choosing a lighter or neutral color to have installed in a smaller bathroom can make the space feel larger than it really is. Ceramic tile is also a great way to create a very coordinated look since it can of course be installed on the wall as easily as it can on the floor.
Glass Shower Doors – Quite apart from the fact that they look wonderful using glass shower doors instead of a shower curtain in a smaller bathroom can literally stretch the space, at least as far as the observing eye perceives. Installing glass doors also means that you do not have to match the accessories in the bathroom to an overwhelming shower curtain pattern,freeing up new interior design possibilities.
Storage – Efficient storage is essential in any bathroom but doubly so in a small bathroom where space is at a premium in the first place. These days there are some great bathroom cabinetry options available that are designed to make the most of the space in which they are installed while still looking great. Many small bathrooms actually have unused space that can be regained with the clever use of smaller cabinets.
Sinks – Pedestal sinks are great but can waste precious space in a smaller bathroom. If you still want a sink that is on display rather than one built into the bathroom counter top and essentially hidden away there are some very attractive above counter bathroom sink options available that are practically works of art in their own right.
